Very close to the Inn at Mirror Lake. Lots of Olympic memorabilia on the walls and ceiling. Interesting and the food was served in large portions so my partner and I split one entree.

We stopped in for a late supper. The servers are friendly and casual. The menu isn't huge but the food is delicious. It's right on the lake so the view is great. They have a bar and you can watch sports as well. Definitely recommended.
